Karyopherin alpha 2 (KPNA2) is associated with the natural resistance to Schistosoma japanicum infection in Microtus fortis.
Transcriptional profiling of Microtus fortis responses to S. japonicum: New sight into Mf‐Hsp90α resistance mechanism
RNA‐Seq was conducted to obtain the transcriptome profile of M. fortis liver infected with S. japonicum at different time points to investigate the mechanism of anti‐schistosome effect of Mf‐HSP90α.
Genome assembly and transcriptome analysis provide insights into the anti-schistosome mechanism of Microtus fortis
The first de novo genome assembly of M. fortis is performed, performing comprehensive gene annotation and evolution analysis, and it is revealed that intense immune response occurred in mouse in late stages of infection (28~42 days post infection), and cannot eliminate schistosome.
De novo assembly and transcriptome characterization: novel insights into the natural resistance mechanisms of Microtus fortis against Schistosoma japonicum
Gene ontology terms and pathways related to the DEGs revealed that up-regulated transcripts were involved in metabolism, immunity and inflammatory responses, and demonstrated that natural and adaptive immune responses, play an important role in M. fortis immunity to S. japonicum.
A Microtus fortis protein, serum albumin, is a novel inhibitor of Schistosoma japonicum schistosomula
The data indicate the potential of Mf -albumin as one of the major selective forces for schistosomiasis.
High throughput data analyses of the immune characteristics of Microtus fortis infected with Schistosoma japonicum
Elevated expression of metabolites and pathways involved in histidine metabolism, valine, leucine, and isoleucine biosyntheses, and lysine degradation may promote the phagocytic function of the neutrophils and natural killer cell activity following TLR activation.
Mechanisms of Resistance to Schistosoma japonicum Infection in Microtus fortis, the Natural Non-permissive Host
This review presents an overview of the established and purported mechanisms of resistance to S. japonicum infection in M. fortis in comparison to Rattus norvegicus, a semi-permissive host.
Effects of Microtus fortis lymphocytes on Schistosoma japonicum in a bone marrow transplantation model.


Immunological characteristics of natural resistance in Microtus fortis to infection with Schistosoma japonicum.
Investigation of the immunological characteristics of natural resistance to Schistosoma japonicum infection in Microtus fortis (MF) living in the Dongting Lake area found no significant difference between WMF and BMF.
Construction of Gene Pool of Microtus fortis and Screening Resistance Associated Genes to Infection of Schistosoma japonicum
It can be concluded that the method which may lay foundation to clone resistance associated gene and to reveal the resistance mechanism of Microtus fortis to Schistosoma japonicum infection is concluded.
Cloning, expression and protective immunity evaluation of the full-length cDNA encoding succinate dehydrogenase iron-sulfur protein of Schistosoma japonicum
The higher degree of egg reduction rate in the test group suggested that SjSDISP vaccine may primarily play a role in anti-embryonation or anti-fecundity immunity, and suggest that it may be a novel and partially protective vaccine candidate against schistosomiasis.

The schistosomula-killing effect of the serum of MF was stronger than that of mice, and it was the same with the tissues/organs of MF.
Schistosoma mansoni: analysis of cercarial transformation methods.
Natural antibodies in Microtus fortis react with antigens derived from four stages in the life-cycle of Schistosoma japonicum.
The observations indicate that even uninfected M. fortis produce antibodies which react with S. japonicum, and this presumably results in the natural resistance to infection which has been reported in these rodents.
Identification of oxadiazoles as new drug leads for the control of schistosomiasis
Treatment of schistosome-infected mice with 4-phenyl-1,2,5-oxadiazole-3-carbonitrile-2-oxide led to marked reductions in worm burdens from treatments against multiple parasite stages and egg-associated pathologies, and protective effects exceed benchmark activity criteria set by the World Health Organization for lead compound development forschistosomiasis.
Heat shock protein and innate immunity.
This concise review summarizes the current controversy over the role of HSPs in innate immunity.
Identification of Human Asparaginyl Endopeptidase (Legumain) as an Inhibitor of Osteoclast Formation and Bone Resorption*
The results suggest that legumain may be a physiologic local regulator of OCL activity that can negatively modulate OCL formation and activity.
